INTEL RADIO NETWORK founder and Talk WFOY-A/ST. AUGUSTINE-JACKSONVILLE 9p-midnight host RICK SENNINGER (on-air name RICK WRIGHT) was arrested in PALENCIA, FL and faces a larceny charge in MICHIGAN, according to the ST. AUGUSTINE RECORD.
The paper reports that the ST. JOHNS COUNTY Sheriff's Dept. picked SENNINGER up on a larceny by conversion charge from IOSCO COUNTY, MI and awaits extradition to MICHIGAN at the local jail. WFOY owner KRISTINE PHILLIPS told the RECORD that SENNINGER's show was going to be dropped anyway because he had not paid his bills, adding that she "started getting calls from former colleagues who told me about not getting paid and his passing bad checks. So things had sort of come to a head with us."
WFOY will be bringing back WESTWOOD ONE's JIM BOHANNON to replace SENNINGER.
